James Taylor, Luton



I want to tell my story and maybe it will help someone make a decision. I am 58 years old and generally never complain about my health, so I was surprised that when I was playing football with my grandson, I fell and felt so much pain. Somehow I managed to get up and get to the house. My wife said that we urgently needed to go to the hospital, which I refused and said that it's just a bruise. By the evening, the pain became much worse and so I agreed with my wife and we went to the hospital. They did an X-ray there and then came the diagnosis; we were shocked. I needed a hip replacement procedure. I was at a loss and could not think properly. Fortunately, my wife had a friend whose father had the same problem and they arranged the operation for him in Latvia, they were very pleased with the result. I got in touch with the patient coordinator at Orthopaedic Riga and we arranged our flights. Without going into details, I was not in the best condition physically or mentally when we flew there. The next day when we met our surgeon Dr.Rafael, I felt that everything would be ok.

The operation went well and there was a period of recovery, which was not easy, but bearable. Now I can walk up the stairs, drive the car and do many other things. The only issue is that I still can’t play football with my grandchildren, but I know that it will happen soon.
